Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Workshop attendance.

Feedback

Due to the time difference, international students doing this unit online have found it difficult to attend 9 am workshops.

Recommendation

This difficulty will be addressed by allocating afternoon workshops for the students doing this unit from overseas.

Feedback from Unit coordinator's experience.

Feedback

International students used chatbox to communicate during 9 am workshops. Discussion on concepts and issues and group presentation were not very useful

Recommendation

This will be addressed by providing an option for the submission of weekly journals and group presentation for students doing this unit online from overseas.

Feedback from Quality of individual and group assessments.

Feedback

Poor referencing and use of limited literature resources.

Recommendation

Relevant recent articles, reports, and cases will be posted on the Moodle site to assist students with individual argumentative essay and for writing a strategic plan. Special sessions to discuss assessment guidelines will be provided.

Feedback from Impacts on unit grade.

Feedback

Allocation of 60% of total marks for group assessments is too high.

Recommendation

Allocation of 40% marks for the group assessments will be considered.

Feedback from Student performance.

Feedback

Assessment of learning outcomes based on two group reports does not allow to assess a student's individual performance.

Recommendation

Marks for the individual argumentative essay will be increased to 60%.

Feedback from Student activity on Moodle.

Feedback

Limited Moodle site engagement.

Recommendation

Special zoom session and phone conversation with students who have poor Moodle site engagement and do not respond to follow-up emails will be considered.
